–The cast of the upcoming seventh season of RuPaul’s Drag Race was announced on Wednesday, and for the first time in the show’s history, the group will be comprised of winners from past seasons. 

According to Variety, each of the eight cast members who were crowned winners between 2011 and 2020 will compete for a $200,000 cash prize and the title of “Queen of All Queens.”

Among the queens that are set to compete are Monét X Change from season 4, Yvie Oddly from season 11 and Jaida Essence Hall from season 12.

Gabrielle Union and Dwyane Wade have created Proudly, a new baby skin-care line for children with brown skin.

The idea for the line of lotion, body wash and oil, among other products, came by way of a “gnarly” diaper rash that Union says she couldn’t figure out how to handle. 

“There has to be a correlation here between melanated skin and some of our issues that impact communities of color just way differently than the community that’s normally centered in these discussions when these kinds of products are being developed,” Union told Essence

Union and Wade worked with dermatologist Naana Boakye to create baby skin-care line, which is available for purchase now.
